Do I have to pay domain transfer?

Da li u imenu domena treba da imam crtice i brojeve?
Izbegavajte brojeve i crtice u imenu Vašeg domena jer se oni teže pamte i teže se izgovaraju.
Keywords in the domain name
One of the basic tips is that the domain name contains the keywords that you would like to find. Domain name keywords have a positive impact on the positioning of your site on Google and other search engines.
The domain name should be the same as your site name or business name. An example of this is Bcoolsite and the domain name is bcoolsite.com, so people will not have to search for an address.
How important is it that my domain name is unique?
It is very important that you choose a unique name for your domain! Avoid domains that are similar to some very well-known domains.
